Nicknamed “The Last of the Red Hot Mamas,” Sophie Tucker was born to an Orthodox Jewish family. Overweight and not conventionally beautiful, she rose to stardom with her blues-inflected songs, humor and infectious charisma. Tucker redefined show business with trademark songs like “Some of These Days” and “My Yiddishe Mama.”
